Just in Time for This Weekend’s Series; The Yankees-Red Sox Drinking Game
This weekend the Yankees and Sox play their final series of the regular season on their way to the playoffs where there is a fair chance they could meet yet again. I’ve been saying all year long that the Yankees would make the playoffs…down 14 games? Not a problem. And here we are, 5 back in the AL East and in control of the Wild Card, ready to make some noise…
Now, in the interest of doing some bonding before the post season and retaining my friendships with those in the (ahem) “Nation”, I’ve devised a drinking game to accompany this friendly contest. A little something that we can all share while we watch these two great teams get ready to battle in the Post Season. I mean, after all, we were deprived of this last year when the Sox became the most expensive team to not make the Post Season just one year after “the Comeback” and winning it all…I know, the hangovers can be a bitch and consistency is hard, even with all that cash.
Without further ado…
The I Hate You, Too Drinking Game
Standards (everyone drinks):
Any dingers; shot
Double play; shot
Double or Triples; Last one to touch their nose does a shot
Inciting a Riot (everyone drinks) :
Bean balls or buzzing the batter high and tight; shot
Nemesis Rules (Other team’s fans drink) :
Anything that your team’s Nemesis (defined below) does on the following list is a shot for the other teams fan:
Dinger, double or triple; 2 shots (1 for it being a dinger/2b/3b, one for the Nemesis factor)
Sweet play in the field; not a routine catch, but turns a dp, etc; shot
REVERSE NEMESIS RULE:
HE commits an error or strikes out with runners in position, YOU do a shot.
Manny (or Lowell if Manny sits because, well, it’s the end of the year and that’s what he does now)
Anyone care to play?
